Well I want to say thanks for all your prayers, good thoughts and kind words over the past few days. I got the call last night that my grandfather passed on. I am now preparing for a quick round trip from KY to NY for the memorial services. My work is great, no trouble getting the time off and they are gonna pay me for the day of the funeral. It is not a trip I wanted make under these circumstances but the up side is I will get to see a bud of mine who has been stateside for about 2 weeks and the Army is sending him back over seas Sat. It looks like I will catch him right before he leaves. Another bad part is that instead of just one funeral I will be going to two funerals. I got the phone call today at work that another very dear lady to me passed away this past weekend also. She was like a grandma to me and was one of my biggest supporters as I was starting out as a pastor. Without a doubt it is going to be a rough weekend.
